Penn Township, PA to Perry, OH

Penn, township, Philadelphia co., Pa. Situated n. w. of the city of Philadelphia, on which it joins. Schuylkill r. bounds it on the w. The surface is generally level; soil, a productive clay and loam, well cultivated. Drained on the n. w. by Falls run, which affords water power. It is the seat of the Girard College, for which the late Stephen Girard bequeathed $2,000,000. The principal edifice is of white marble, and is 218 feet long and 160 wide, including the platforms which support the columns, and 97 feet high. There are 34 columns, of fine Grecian architecture, of the Corinthian order, around the building, 55 feet high, and 6 feet diameter at the base. The building is incombustible, and will cost over $1,200,000; and thus a large part of the munificent bequest for the gratuitous education of orphan boys, will be swallowed up in this extravagant expenditure. There are 5 buildings attached to the institution. It has 4 stores, cap. $2,900; 1 furnace, 1 grist m. Cap. in manufac. $76,600. Pop. 3,342.

Penn Yan, p-v., Milo, t., capital of Yates co., N. Y., 192 w. Albany, 329 W. Situated on the outlet of Crooked lake, which affords water power. It contains a court house, jail, a bank, an academy, 5 churches, 1 Presbyterian, 1 Congregation al, 1 Episcopal, 1 Baptist, and 1 Methodist, 2 stores, 2 warehouses, 2 flouring m., 2 saw m., furnace, 1 clothier's works, 1 tannery, 1 boot van 3 carriage fac, 1 plough fac, 1 tannery, 2 printing offices, each issuing a weekly newspaper, 30 dwellings, and about 1,800 inhabitants. The Crooked Lake canal, 8 ms. long, passes through the place, and through Seneca Lake connects with the Erie canal.

Penobscot, r., the largest river of Maine, consists of two main branches. The larger or western branch rises in the highlands, in the western part of Maine, and which divide it from Canada and not far from the head waters of the Chaudiere r., which flows into the St. Lawrence. Alter considerable course to the E. it falls into Chesuncook lake, whence passing s. e., and through Pemadumcook and other lakes, it unites with the eastern branch. This branch, called the Seboois rises in some small lakes near the head waters of the Aroostook r., and flows nearly s. to the junction, 54 miles above Bangor. After the junction the river proceeds in a s. e. direction until it receives Mattawamkeag r., from the n. e., which is its principal tributary on the e. side. Its direction is then s. s. w., until it receives the Piscatiquis, its chief western tributary; it then holds a direction s. by w. to its entrance into Penobscot Bay. Its upper portions have many falls and rapids, furnishing many excellent mill sites. It is about 275 miles long from its source to the ocean. It is navigable 50 ms. from the ocean, to Bangor, for vessels of a large size, and for boats to a considerable distance above that. The tide rises at Bangor more than 20 feet, to which the same causes in a measure contribute, which produce such an enormous tide in the Bay of Fundy, the wedge like form of the bay, and the current produced by the return of the gulf stream. There is a number of islands in the river above Bangor, the principal of which is Old town, the residence of the Penobscot tribe of Indians, who own all the islands in the r. as far as the forks, several ms. above Mattawamkeag r., several of which are considerable, and fertile. They have a considerable annuity, secured to them by the state.

There are several flourishing towns on the Penobscot bay and river. On the e. side are Castine, Bucksport, and Orrington. On the w. side are Thomaston, Camden, Belfast, Prospect, Frankfort, Hamden, Bangor, and Orono. The Penobscot bay is a fine body of water, and extends from the ocean, at Owl's Head, to Belfast bay, about 20 miles. Across the mouth of the bay, from Owl's Head to Burnt Coat Island, is about 30 miles. It embosoms a number of fine islands, the principal of which are Deer Island, Fox Islands, Isle of Haut, Long island, and some others. From a hill back of Camden, and from other points, the view of this bay, with its islands and numerous vessels, is exceedingly beautiful. The bay and river contain many fine harbors, the principal of which are Castine, Belfast, Bucksport, Bangor, and others.
